Meadville Awarded Green Light-Go Grant

Meadville will receive a $5,456 state grant to underwrite the costs of upgrading 18 traffic signals to LEDs under Pennsylvania’s new “Green Light-Go” program, according to Senator-elect Michele Brooks.

“This grant will help improve the visibility of these signals, which will increase traffic safety in Meadville,” said Senator-elect Brooks.  “This is a great investment by the state that will benefit the motorists and pedestrians who use these intersections.”

Meadville is among 38 municipalities sharing $1.8 million in the current round of Green Light-Go funding. The program provides funding to municipalities for installing light-emitting diode (LED) technology, performing regional operations such as retiming, developing special event plans and monitoring traffic signals, as well as upgrading traffic signals to the latest technologies.

Funding for the Green Light-Go program was made possible by Act 89 of 2013, the comprehensive transportation plan approved by the Senate and signed into law by the Governor in November 2013.
